Mask one or more units, as specified on the command line. This will
link these unit files to /dev/null, making it impossible to start
them. This is a stronger version of disable, since it prohibits all
kinds of activation of the unit, including enablement and manual
activation. Use this option with care. This honors the --runtime
option to only mask temporarily until the next reboot of the
system. The --now option may be used to ensure that the units are
also stopped. This command expects valid unit names only, it does
not accept unit file paths.
